Stage performances can be an enjoyable way to express our passions. For some it can be a daunting task, but practice mitigates this social anxiety. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to take the stage at All School Meeting each week. Our students share their talents and popular books with the community. I was overjoyed when my first graders requested to present the favorite class poems to the school. One poem, titled Friends, highlights our FA BEE philosophy of kindness. Another poem, Martin Luther King's Dream, embodies the life and peaceful methods of Dr. King. Our class performed beautifully! When reflecting on our stage presentation, each student expressed the initial feeling of nervousness but by the end all appreciated the experience. I am so proud of their courage!
Have a terrific weekend.
